Trading trends is a market approach that traders always gun for, as they look for ways to take advantage of directional markets.
Nevertheless it has sometimes proven difficult to not only find but also time entries into those trends.
The All ADX Forex Trading strategy is designed to help make the above stated process less cumbersome and traders can carefully spot the best market trends.
Pivotal to this strategy is the all ADX indicator, a technical tool that displays three important lines i.e. the gold (ADX line), green (DI+ or plus directional movement index) and red (DI- or minus directional movement index).
We’ve added a horizontal line at the 20 level to denote weak or strong trends depending on the orientation of the ADX line below or above this level respectively.

Long Entry Rules
Enter a bullish trade if the following indicator or chart pattern gets put on display:

- If the line of the fx-sniper Metatrader 4 forex indicator turns medium sea green as depicted on Fig. 1.0, bulls are said to be taking a market lead, hence a buy order will do.
